Doors, 2

Doors, 2

Many Pasadena doors are difficult to photograph because they’re shaded by awnings, pergolas or little roofs. It’s a necessary evil to protect the doors and people from summer’s heat, which is fine for the selfish inhabitants but unfortunate for photographers trying to do a series about doors. I have a fondness for this crazy door. […]

Shiny Penny

Shiny Penny

Penny for Your Thoughts is my favorite shop in Pasadena. I’ve said it before: there’s no other store like it. Vintage garden items, handmade clothes, old books, jewelry, china–plus coffee, food and free wifi–it’s where you go to get a gift for someone who has everything, even if that someone is you. When I stopped […]

Zen Monday: #111

Zen Monday: #111

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box to avoid […]

Back to the Sconeage

Back to the Sconeage

I know. It looks kind of like an ad. It is, sort of. The Sconeage Bakery is one of my regular stops at the Saturday morning Farmers’ Market at Victory Park because I am flat out addicted to that granola. When John comes with me he always gets a scone. He loves them in every […]

Garages, 1

Garages, 1

I’m interested in garages. Maybe I’ll do a series. You know, like my door series, of which I’ve posted–I think one, so far. Let’s begin with a comparison–the quirky vs. the new. I favor the quirky for its charm, but the new has advantages. In this case you can put an actual car in the […]

Cubicle

Cubicle

I’ve heard derogatory terms for office workers: “office drones,” “Dilberts,” “cubicle jockeys.” But working in an office can be a cushy job. There’s always a place to sit, it’s air-conditioned and you get free coffee. Maybe it’s my upbringing in the world of academe; I’ve always been comfortable in offices. When I worked in an […]

Fall Color

Fall Color

We had fall for about two days. Now it’s summer again. Today we expect triple digit temperatures. I like it hot. Yesterday I dug a hole in the back yard because I intend to plant a tree. I’m no fool; I like it hot but I wouldn’t dig a hole today. I wouldn’t plant a […]

Theme Day: Open Air Markets

Theme Day: Open Air Markets

In the San Gabriel Valley there’s an open-air Farmers’ Market almost every day of the week. (You’re going to thank me for this link to Hometown Pasadena’s listing of all of them. You might want to bookmark it. I know I keep needing it.) I’ve taken many other photos of Farmers’ Markets, but this one […]

Last Day, August 2010

Last Day, August 2010

It’s the last day of Last Day. We’ve visited this spot at Hahamongna Watershed Park overlooking Johnson Field twelve times now, on the last day of each month, for a year. I stole the idea from Marley of Cheltenham Daily Photo, though I know other photographers have done such studies of the seasons. (We do […]

Zen Monday: #110

Oh boy, it’s Zen Monday, the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box […]
